How Innovation in the Culinary Arts is the Basis of All Our Courses

Not all culinary training institutions in South Africa are equal. Some may seem impressive from the outside, but very few academies truly prioritise industry innovations in their learning programmes. For students who do not choose wisely, spending money on below-par institutions can mean money wasted on courses that don’t create many opportunities in the food preparation sector. The Chefs Training & Innovation Academy stands out because we truly believe in providing students with innovative culinary arts training that places them ahead of the curve.

Innovation in Cutting-edge Qualifications

Culinary schools in South Africa must meet the revised skills development strategy as set out by the Organising Framework for Occupations. This revised strategy includes the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO), with whom we at CTIA are fully accredited. What this means is that our culinary arts courses are in line with international trends and best practices. We provide students with the skills, experience, and career confidence needed to succeed in this dynamic and ever-changing industry. Ours is a holistic approach to learning, and we offer so much more than just training in cookery. With us, students can expect to learn the ins and outs of their chosen career – from knife techniques to business skills.

When it comes to training in the culinary arts, not all roads lead to Rome. You will need to find a cooking school that will give you a competitive edge. We at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy aim to do precisely this with several programmes from which to choose, each one tailored to the various requirements students may have. Whether you are seeking foundational knowledge in food preparation or if your goal is a chef’s occupational certificate, we can assist you. Students can also choose between full-time, part-time, or e-learning courses.

Innovation in Industry Placements

Placement International, an American recruitment and placement company, has allied with CTIA to give our students preference. This is because our academy produces outstanding, work-ready professionals who adapt easily to national and international work environments. We also have various industry partners where students can carry out their practical training in the culinary arts and receive on-the-job coaching. These placements open plenty of doors for students to explore once they have graduated.

As an elite, top-tier culinary arts school in South Africa, you can trust us to help you turn your passion into a fulfilling and successful career. If you would like to study with us and fast-track your career to a bright future, feel free to contact us today.
